After the first swirl, you can perceive a first-class balance in this white wine, because it does not stand out on the glass walls watery or syrupy or liqueur-like. To the nose, this Bodegas D. Mateos white wine shows all sorts of plum, guava, physalis, violet and perfume rose.
This Spanish wine delights with its elegantly dry flavor. It was bottled with only 1.2 grams of residual sugar. As you would expect from a wine in this price range, this Spanish wine naturally enchants with the finest balance despite all its dryness. Taste does not necessarily require residual sugar. On the palate, the texture of this balanced white wine is wonderfully creamy and buttery. With its vital fruit acidity, the Tempranillo Blanco Barrica is impressively fresh and lively on the palate. In the finish, this white wine from the wine-growing region of La Rioja finally inspires with considerable length. Again, hints of lavender and mango show up.

Clearly, the Tempranillo Blanco Barrica is also determined by the climate and viticultural style of the Rioja DOCa.
